One of the best books of 2018, "Bad Blood" featured on ABC's 20/20 and in a new HBO Documentary!
The story of Elizabeth Holmes and the fall of her start-up Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. It was the subject of ABC's 20/20, broadcast on March 15, 2019.
Titled "The Dropout" [S41 E28], it is available to watch online or on demand, one option is the ABC go website here.
John Carreyrou, author of the book, "Bad Blood," is interviewed extensively in the episode, as are many of the people he interviewed and worked with, to write the book.
Elaine says: The book was fascinating, compelling, unbelievable, hard to look away from -- the 20/20 episode doubles down on all of that. I still, and perhaps even more so, highly recommned the book to everyone!
Even more news:
An article in Vantiy Fair about the new HBO documentary from Academy Award winner Alex Gibney. An investigation into the rise and fall of Theranos, "The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley," premiering on HBO the week of March 22, 2019.
The strange truth of "The Inventor" is that even now that the breadth of her deceptions has become clear, Holmes still fascinates.
